The Helio A7 Ultra-lightweight Active Folding wheelchair by Motion Composites features sophisticated technology and high-performance 7000-series aluminium alloy that gives the wheelchair unparalleled manoeuvrability and lightness.
7000-series aluminium alloy’s lightness:
Motion Composites have designed one of the lightest folding aluminium chairs on the market by combining the newest hydroforming technologies with an aluminium alloy known for its excellent strength-to-weight ratio. Helio A7 accessories and components were created to reduce weight as much as possible for quick handling.
Energy saver so that a user can go further:
Propulsion simplicity is a clear benefit, and the Helio A7 by Motion Composites provide exceptional agility. The entirely symmetrical hydroformed cross brace, oval tubing, and pivot axles work together to improve the frame’s stability. At the same time, the revolutionary folding system saves you significant energy daily.
Components that are innovative and fully adjustable:
The forged vertical axle plate maximises stability and reactivity while providing the business’s most precise rear wheel adjustment. The composite armrests rapidly convert from flip-back to single post for convenient configuration. With a flick of a finger, you may also modify the height.
Optimal seat-to-floor wheelchair height:
The frame’s revolutionary design allows for a front seat-to-floor height of under 12 inches (30.5 cm). This characteristic makes it easier to make contact with the ground and improves foot propulsion. Alternatively, you can extend it beyond 20 inches (50.8 cm) to fulfil your most demanding requirements. Back cane support with reinforcement: for enhanced comfort and stability.
The lowest seat-to-floor height
The innovative frame design lets you achieve a super low 13 1/2” (34.3 cm) seat-to-floor height with a 4” caster on a standard frame. The same frame can go up to 21 1/4’’ (54cm).
High-end aluminium manufacturing yields high-end performance
By coupling the latest hydroforming technologies with an ultra-high performance aluminium alloy, we created one of the lightest folding aluminium wheelchairs…ever.
Get more mileage out of your energy
Everybody benefits from an easy-to-propel wheelchair. Our entirely Symmetrical Hydroformed Crossbrace, oval-shaped tubes and oversized pivot axles work in concert, while our unique Ultrarigid Folding System maximizes frame rigidity and energy conservation.
Better design for better mobility
Even an ultra-lightweight carbon fibre frame can get weighed down without the right components. That’s why every single accessory, bolt and bracket of the Helio A7 is designed with weight reduction in mind. Lightness is a top priority from the flip-back convertible armrests to the forged aluminium axle plate.
Ultralight Aluminum 7005 T6 — An aluminium alloy renowned for its high strength-to-weight ratio.
Rigid Unibody Frame — A unibody frame is much stronger and needs less maintenance than a standard two-part frame. It also reduces weight while maximizing propulsion efficiency.
Symmetrical Hydroformed Cross brace 3D — Entirely symmetrical aluminium cross-brace for reduced torsion and better energy distribution throughout the frame.
Ultra rigid Folding System — High-precision tolerances and oversized pivot axles for best-in-class propulsion efficiency.
Forged Vertical Axle plate — Offers the industry’s most precise rear wheel adjustability. The vertical mounting maximizes rigidity and responsiveness.
Evolve Caster Housing — Embedded inside the frame for rock-solid durability, the Evolve Caster Housing offers easy and precise infinite adjustments.
Flip-back Convertible Armrest — Easy to adjust and made of composite materials for strength and reduced weight. The only armrest that converts from flip-back to a single post without using tools.
Newton Accessories — Parts and accessories designed to be lighter, with improved functionality and awesome style.
